Since 1984, Canon Foods has remained focused on providing Australian families with versatile and convenient meal options that liven up the dinner table and make every meal time one to celebrate. As a Nationwide supplier to the retail and food service sectors, Canon Foods pride themselves on their ability to provide high quality products, which are convenient and don’t hit the back pocket.
With an end of life Microsoft Small Business server on their hands, Canon Foods needed a more robust and flexible long term solution.
Canon Foods turned to Epic IT to not just replace their end of life Microsoft Small Business server but to provide a more longer term, robust and flexible solution that would be more easily accessible from multiple locations. The physical on premise server was proving unreliable, with failing hardware components causing downtime to company operations. Canon Foods also required a higher speed internet connection to drive better performance to future systems.
Epic IT recommended a transition to Microsoft Office 365 for email and Microsoft Azure for infrastructure.
Epic IT recommended an upgrade to a fixed line high speed connection to make the cloud transition easier and a long-term viable solution for Canon Foods. Once connection would be in place, Epic IT would transition Canon Foods data and applications to the Microsoft cloud. The Exchange server would be migrated to Microsoft Office 365 whereas applications and would move straight to a private cloud server hosted on Microsoft Azure platform.
Canon Foods migrated to Microsoft Office 365 and Azure IAAS and have experienced virtually zero down time since migration.
Since migration, Canon Foods have experienced a very reliable system delivered to their office via fixed line high speed internet. Canon Foods also moved to a thin client deployment simplifying the desktop environment. Access from outside their main office has also improved making the system a lot more flexible than before.
